Big and flashy - Nissan QX56
Sticker price: $57,850 - $60,950
Mileage: 14 City / 20 Hwy

The one thing the QX56 has in common with the Juke, besides both being Nissan products, is that both have what are politely called "polarizing" designs. In other words, a lot of people think they look cool while lot of other people think those people need to see an optometrist.

Regardless of what anyone thinks of its looks outside, the QX56 is unquestionably gorgeous on the inside and it drives marvelously, all things considered. This is a real old-fashioned engineered-from-a-truck SUV but it rides smoothly, while still feeling nicely controlled.

It's also capable of towing 8,500 pounds, just like a real truck. Given that, its fuel economy is more than respectable. Keep in mind, though, this one uses premium fuel, so you'll be paying top dollar for every gallon.
